Abstract

Theoretical background related to the construct of employability is presented, with emphasis on the social component of employability, rewarding to deal with (R). In a field study, students rated tutors they would recommend to others as rewarding to work with, specifically, tutors high on social perceptiveness and agreeableness. The importance of the work is both theoretical and practical in that social perceptiveness is conceived of as a dimension of the Hogan model of employability (theoretical), and the results have some implications for staffing tutoring centers (practical).
